Discussion Forum 5 Prompt: In this week’s readings and materials we have examined the relationship of cities to the natural landscapes upon which they are built. The technologies that have built cities are more often than not designed as linear systems as opposed to circular systems found in nature. There are some notable exceptions to this as cities have started to be informed by more sustainable ‘ecological’ systems design and technology. For the discussion this week, CHOSE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING OPTIONAL PROMPTS FOR THE POSTING:!!!

Option 1: In considering the differences in linear and circular systems, (a) describe an example or two of how urban systems that you regularly encounter in the urban setting (i.e. transportation, food, waste, water, energy, etc.) could change or be modified to become more circular; (b) discuss what you see to be the important factors(s) that will determine whether this change or modification will happen and/or be replicated; and (c) discuss how your example is supported by one or more of the examples provided in the supplemental material for this week.

Option 2: In considering what changes are needing to occur for cities to become more a “a part of nature” as opposed to being “apart from nature,” (a) explain what seems to you to be more important in this transformation — advances in the technology or changes in the way in which society as a whole values our natural environment; and (b) discuss how how one or more of the examples provided in the supplemental material for this week illustrate how technological development can be an enhancement and/or a distraction to how society values the natural environment.

Note: Knowing your personal ecological footprint might help you reflect on how the urban systems you encounter and consumer choices you are given, affect the size of your footprint and what would changes could be made to help you reduce the size. Also, it may be useful to bring into the discussion any thoughts or personal encounters you have had with (1) ‘bio-feedback’ such as represented in the examples of environmental dashboards or elements in the built environment that you have occupied; and/or (2) nature inspired urban designs as represented in the concepts and examples discussed in the material for this week.
